Naval Strike Missile

Adaptable, Long-Range Precision

The Naval Strike Missile (NSM) is a long-range, anti-ship missile that provides superior strike capability against land and sea targets with a range of just over 100 nautical miles. NSM blends technologies to give it a high level of survivability. The missile is difficult for enemy radars to detect, and its sophisticated flight capabilities allow it to reach targets in the most challenging environments.

Developed by Kongsberg in Norway, NSM is the main weapon for the Norwegian Navy's frigate and corvette ship classes, and Poland's truck-mounted coastal defense system.

The Naval Strike Missile is operational on land and at sea, and can climb and descend according to terrain when it travels over land.

The NSM was successfully demonstrated on the U.S. Navy's Littoral Combat Ship USS Coronado in 2014.

FEATURES:

  • Emits low observable signals to avoid detection by enemy radars
  • Climbs and descends with the terrain
  • Performs evasive maneuvers to counter the world's most capable defense systems
  • Carries a programmable fuze warhead

In April 2015, Raytheon Company announced a partnership with Kongsberg for the NSM. The two companies also partner in the development of the Joint Strike Missile.
